Both cars, Toyota and Mitsubishi, made their market debut in 2017. Since then, every month it was the car from Mitsubishi that turned out to be more popular than its main competitor.

At the end of January 2021, the Toyota Rush cross-van outstripped its competitor Mitsubishi Xpander in popularity. The Toyota Rush sold 3,627 units last month, while Mitsubishi sold 3,469 units.

Note that both cars are sold in the Indonesian market, where cars with a similar body type are very popular. Moreover, earlier Toyota Rush was a classic SUV, and changed its appearance in 2017. Now the dimensions of the car are 4435x1695x1705 mm with a distance between the axles of 2 685 mm. Thus, the length and wheelbase have grown quite seriously.

But the Mitsubishi Xpander was originally designed as a compact MPV with an off-road character. At the same time, Mitsubishi is significantly ahead of its competitor in wheelbase size – 2,775 mm.

The power plants for both cars are similar – under their hood are 1.5-liter turbo engines. Toyota has 105 hp, while Mitsubishi has 120 hp.

5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic transmission work in tandem with the engines. Four-wheel drive is not even available as an option.
